Warner Bros. has released the first few minutes of the final (sob) Harry Potter film, with a scene that brings the series back to one of its central mythologies: A wizard and his wand. Since at the end of Deathly Hallows, Part 1 Voldemort had raided Dumbledore’s tomb for the Elder Wand, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) goes to question Mr. Ollivander the wandmaker about how Voldemort knew to find the wand. While Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) look on, they discuss the unique makeup of each wand; although some, like Harry and Voldemort’s wands, may share a feather that bonds them, no two are exactly alike. As Ollivander says, “The wand chooses the wizard.”
The featurette also hints at what may become my favorite sequence of the movie, when Harry, Ron, and Hermione fight Draco in the Room of Hidden Things before it gets set on fire and they have to make a quick getaway. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 comes out on July 15.
